Rolex watches are always desirable and sought-after by collectors because they appreciate with time.
Thus, a Rolex watch is considered to be a good investment.
However, some discontinued Rolex models are becoming more valuable and collectable by the day.
It is said that collectors today are categorising features of specific discontinued Rolexes like they ideally would do with vintage models.
Here are three modern discontinued Rolexes that are increasing in value. Let’s today explore the aspects that make them unique and valuable.
Rolex introduced the Submariner “Kermit” 16610LV in 2003 to celebrate the model’s 50th anniversary.
Some unique features make it distinct from its sibling reference 16610LN.
However, the reference 16610LV is also available in several dials and bezel colour options, categorised by its serial number.
One of the significant models is the Y serial Submariner reference 16610LV that flaunts a “flat 4” bezel.
Thus, the Y serial Submariner reference 16610LV features a flat-four bezel with a lighter green shade, eventually fetching a premium when selling.
Rolex, unfortunately, doesn’t manufacturer the flat 4 bezel insert models any longer.
While this specific version of the Submariner “Kermit” is apparently rare, the value of reference 16610LV has increased.
Rolex introduced the GMT-Master II reference 16710 in three different bezel options –
One is Black, second is Red & Blue (Pepsi), and the other is Red & Black (Coke).
And the most famous of them was the GMT-Master II Pepsi.
However, reference 16710 has some nuances that ideally affect its value today. For example –
Moreover, the GMT-Master II “Coke” along with the “Pepsi” references are supposed to see a significant increase in value. Why?
This is because these examples are ideally more coveted than the reference 126710 and 116710.
However, the colour of the bezel inserts on the ref. 16710 is brighter and offers a more prominent wrist presence.

The Rolex Sea-Dweller Ceramic Reference 116600 experienced the shortest production period of all contemporary Rolex watches.
While Rolex launched the Sea-Dweller in March 2014, the production was discontinued officially in 2017.
However, the two years production run of the Rolex Sea-Dweller Ref. 116600 makes the watch unique as well as valuable.
